About The Event

These are free 2.5 to 3 hour trainings where you will learn how to identify priority invasive species, how to record basic data and how to report findings on EDDMapSWest, a national early detection reporting system. Participants learn plant identification through a PowerPoint presentation and live material. Participants also learn methods of manual removal and which species you should not attempt to remove. Trainings will equip volunteers with the knowledge necessary to conduct invasive plant surveys in order to support local land managers that need your help. Your efforts will directly support the maintenance of healthy ecosystems. Volunteers will receive an invasive plant identification booklet along with survey forms. We ask that volunteers who sign up conduct 1-2 surveys over the field season.

*** Dates and venue locations still to be determined for some of the following trainings. Please check our website or Facebook page regularly for updates. Capacity will be limited, so if you would like to attend one of these free trainings, please RSVP to Chelsea Dole at info@pnw-ipc.org to reserve your place!
